Went twice in the same day. Morning, for breakfast, was OK, but not a large selection. Would have rated it quite highly if it were not for the fact we had our evening meal there. In the evening we had meatloaf and chicken pot pie. The meatloaf was accompanied by mashed potato and mixed veg. The meatloaf was hot, but... More

Full of nostalgia, the diner serves a great selection of burgers, salads p, sandwiches etc and... More

We had a nice late dinner, a few beers and fun with the jukebox. The service was friendly and fast and the hamburger very good.

This old style diner offers a good variety of favorites with generous portions and friendly staff it is a great way to start the day or grab a meal for lunch or dinner. Prices are average but the food is well worth it.

Travelled from Perth, Australia Dec '13. Ate here a few times with family. Fantastic atmosphere, food and service was excellent. Historic photos and memorabilia made the experience more enjoyable. Definitely worth a visit!

Only complaint was the my wife ordered the potatoes without onions and was told the second day we went that she couldn't get them that way. Considering she did get... More

My husbands came out on 3 plates. We... More
